Ladakh’s response to bifurcation, Kerala Floods, SDF MLAs join BJP

In all the conversation around the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh has found little mention. How have the people of Leh and Kargil districts reacted to the move to make Ladakh a Union Territory? Why do their sentiments differ? Ankita Dwivedi Johri, who writes for the Sunday Express and traveled across Ladakh after the announcement, unpacks why many people in the area feel so positively about the move. For the second consecutive year, Kerala is in the throes of teeming floods and a series of subsequent landslides that have claimed over 90 lives. Kerala correspondent Vishnu Varma dissects why this year’s floods are different and whether the state government has taken enough precautionary measures. Last, why ten MLAs of the Sikkim Democratic Front have joined the BJP.
